12:10 PM: We start the second half of the 14th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day at the easternmost spot on the map, Sale #34, 8145 5th Ave SW, in one of Highland Park’s furthest (but what a great view!) reaches. Go to Kenyon/5th and turn right (south) on 5th. Also in a spot of their own and inviting you to come by, Sale #33, 8124 24th SW:
They e-mailed, “We have a lot of kid stuff, some mid-century modern tables, baby gear and more! … We also have a donation table with mystery toy bags. Proceeds go to Louisa Boren STEM School.” Back in eastern Highland Park, Sale #19 at 9th and Thistle is a Girl Scout troop benefit with Italian sodas!
Sale #165, 2932 Walnut Ave SW, features “the cutest lemonade stand,” according to Karin, who sent the photo:
And talk about cute. Check out the ultimate garage-saling T-shirts, as photographed by Cindy at Sale #112 1706 California SW):
On the opposite end of the peninsula, the southernmost sale this year is Sale #334, 11408 Marine View Dr SW. We just stopped there, and found out that Oreo is the mascot:

Sale #63 is at 3840 44th SW. Across the street, one of the day’s most unusual items was likely the old-school Coke machine at Sale #67, 3831 44th SW:
2:40 PM: A few final scenes – lots of selling going on along 42nd SW north of Morgan Junction:

3:01 PM: And that’s a wrap! Thanks to everyone who participated – shopping, selling, mingling, whatever. Next up, who’s taking donated leftovers!
5:22 PM P.S. One post-WSCGSD report:
My finds at the garage sale by Hotwire (Coffee) parking lot. The painting is an original by Teresa Walsh, who I love, and the little book is how to do hand shadow puppets, & who can’t use two pretty scarves.
All bought for under $20, & $ went to non-profits!
